Were the Buffalo Bills showcasing running back Marshawn Lynch during the Packers’ 34-7 victory at Green Bay on Sunday? It’s possible, according to the Buffalo News, which reported trade talk of Lynch for disgruntled Packers linebacker A.J. Hawk has intensified.
Lynch rushed for 64 yards on 17 carries, while Bills rookie C.J. Spiller, the team’s starter, had just five touches.
Packers running back Brandon Jackson, in his first start for the injured Ryan Grant, was less than impressive, managing just 29 yards on 11 carries.
Hawk, who was active but did not play in Week 1 against the Philadelphia Eagles, started against the Bills and had four tackles and five assists. Last week, Hawk said he was upset he didn’t play vs. the Eagles, and his agent said Hawk would be OK with a trade.
Hawk could help the Bills, who are without injured starting inside linebacker Paul Posluszny.
Player-for-player trades are rare in the NFL, but this is one that seems to make some sense for both clubs.
